(06.08.06) On tap at Rockbottom Chicago, Chicago, IL. Poured clear straw hued with small white head. Soft carbonation. Malty aroma. Light to medium bodied lager that starts dry with nutty/toasted malt flavor. Finished dry with light malt fade and slight hop bitterness. A very good, drinkable Pils.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 A decent enough pils, pouring a golden body with good, steady carbonation an a creamy head that laced the glass in sheets. It’s got a mild grassy aroma with some decent floral hopping on top. Fairly light-bodied, the sweet malt body is nicely complemented by the snappy floral hop bitterness in the finish.frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2005

Yellow, almost golden, with a lime-green aura and topped by a white film and ring. Light, floral hop aroma with minute hints of solvent. Moderately acidic flavor with a hint of lime and a dry finish. I appreciated their Line Drive Light a little more.

At RB Chicago: Golden with a filmy head. Nice Saazy bite of hops in this one ... gluey mouthfeel. Good pils. Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Clear golden body with a small head that quickly disappears be still leaves nice lacing. Nice aromatic pilsenser nose with the hops coming through in a strong way. A little bit of grain and some grass thrown in for the hell of it. The body is what you would expect from a pilsener, not exactly thick, but certainly not weak or boring. The hop character really comes through in the nose, almost to the point of knocking the malt out completely. Perhaps a bit more classic than some American Pilseners, but adequately hopped and quite pleasing.

Draft, on the RB Chicago rooftop. Well, back in America, and I gotta say nothing beats coming home to a good handcrafted brewpub beer. This seems like one of the "India Pale" variations on basic styles that’s getting popular, and it’s done very well. A very nice pilsner body hids a big taste of the usual IPA suspects, Cascade and Centennial. Could even be a little Northern Brewer in there, but what the heck do I know, I sure ain’t no BJCP graduate. All in all, a great lunchtime beer!
